Next Tuesday, August 23rd, Portsmouth Community will air a live performance of my radio play, Something in the Nothing, on 106.1 FM in New Hampshire.
Drawn from the same experiences that fueled my novel, Pale Highway, Something in the Nothing is set in a nursing home, and tells the story of a conversation between an Alzheimer’s patient and his caregiver — a conversation that will have a dramatic impact upon both of their lives, forever.
Something in the Nothing – Nicholas Conley
Something in the Nothing
will star the voices of actors John Pearson, Erika Wilson, Jessica Rainville, Jessie Duthrie, David Phreaner, and Suzy Manzi. Fellow New Hampshirities can tune in at 6:30 PM Eastern Time on Tuesday, August 23rd to hear it live – and those of you who are outside New Hampshire can listen to it live on the WSCA website
, or if you aren’t available on the night of the broadcast, just give it a listen later on in the site’s Audio Theater archives!
I went to see the rehearsal on Wednesday night, and all I can say is that it blew me away: the sound design, the ambiance, and the performances of these actors have taken my script and created a truly heartfelt, beautiful production out of it. The people involved in making this are dedicating all of their tremendous talent to put together something truly remarkable, and I can’t wait to see the final production.
